Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Hilarious: Kikaider can walk on walls vertically!

Facebook fan Brad Hogan sent me a couple of tokusatsu videos through Facebook. Two of them were Kikaider videos and they are quite hilarious:

He actually fights his enemies by driving over them with his sidecar while drifting his motorcycle. 😀

For people who are (like me)unknown with Kikaider, the Wikipedia article says this:
Kikaider (????????? Jinz? Ningen Kikaid??, lit. Artificial Humanoid Kikaider) is a Japanese superhero created by Shotaro Ishinomori. The character has appeared in manga, tokusatsu, and anime.
Paying tribute to Astro Boy, created by his mentor Osamu Tezuka, Ishinomori used the stories of Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio (which was also the basis for Astro Boy) along with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as the basis for his science fiction action story.

Kikaider, the main character, is a humanoid robot, built by Dr. Komyoji to protect himself and his children from the dark Android commanded by the evil Professor Gill, the leader of a terrorist organization called DARK.
Well, he sure does look a bit like Frankenstein! 😀

This compilation is also fantastic:

As you can see he travels around on his motorcycle with sidecar and a guitar on his back. He can walk on walls and whenever he transforms into Kikaider his sidecar magically moves to the other side! 😀

Thanks Brad! I had a good laugh! 😀
